Todd Starnes Show – Feb 26
THE FIRST HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
12:05pm- Fire Him! As the Broward County sheriff continues to face criticism for his department’s actions before and after the deadly school shooting in Parkland, thousands of Floridians will be arriving in Tallahassee on Monday to demand more gun control. It is the second time in recent days that protesters have converged on the Capitol to pressure lawmakers into taking action. About 100 students and their chaperones made the 450-mile bus trip from Parkland last week, meeting with lawmakers and Gov. Rick Scott and staging a protest outside the state House of Representatives. But where students last week sought conversations and lobbied for a variety of gun control and school safety measures, the group arriving Monday lists as one of its aims a permanent ban on assault-style rifles like the one used by the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooter.
12:30pm– Guest: Chicks on the Right, two professional, working Central Indiana mothers who run an edgy, conservative website (http://chicksontheright.com). They are known to their followers as Daisy (Amy Jo Clark) and Mockarena (Miriam Weaver).
12:50pm- Dan Rather: Covering Trump like facing a ‘fertilizer spreader in a windstorm’
THE SECOND HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
1:05pm- NRA Fallout! Major companies with ties to the National Rifle Association suddenly shed ties to the pro-gun-rights interest group amid intense scrutiny over the Parkland, Fla. school shooting. The breakups were swift amid a billowing cloud of scrutiny on social media, where countless users threatened to boycott companies that maintained a relationship with the NRA. Most of the businesses had offered discounted products and services to NRA’s several million members. Critics said the deals served as an attractive element of NRA membership. The NRA blasted the companies that severed ties for “a shameful display of political and civic cowardice.” “Let it be absolutely clear. The loss of a discount will neither scare nor distract one single NRA member from our mission to stand and defend the individual freedoms that have always made America the greatest nation in the world,” the group said in a statement.
1:30pm- Connect! Guest: Kirk Cameron, the ’80s TV sitcom star turned evangelical Christian. Cameron hosts Connect, “Offering real help for parenting kids in a social media world, ‘Kirk Cameron: CONNECT’ screens exclusively in movie theaters nationwide for two nights only on February 27 and March 1. Tickets are available at FathomEvents.com.”
THE THIRD HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
2:05pm – Snub! The California Democratic Party will not endorse Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s re-election bid this year, with delegates at the party’s annual convention giving the majority of votes to her top primary challenger, progressive State Sen. Kevin de Leon. De Leon got 54 percent of the vote, compared to 37 percent for the more moderate Feinstein, according to results released Sunday. But neither Democrat will receive the state party endorsement because they failed to reach the 60 percent threshold. The vote totals were not a surprise, considering the state party’s liberal leaning. And Feinstein leads de Leon by 29 percentage points in the primary race, according to the most recent RealClearPolitics polls average.
2:30pm- Guest: Missy Robertson, star of the reality television show DUCK DYNASTY and her youngest daughter, Mia. They have partnered with Zonderkidz to release a new youth fiction series – PRINCESS IN CAMO (Zonderkidz, February 27, 2018)
